     Summer traffic at the complete review remains tepid if steady.
     Good to see quite a few new reviews assert themselves -- though it was the release of film-preview that led to an old review of a Jo Nesbø novel easily being the most popular of the month.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 lists.
